As of 11:40 last night, Environment Canada is now saying the worst of the weather can be expected tomorrow.
There is a freezing rain warning in effect for our region which has been in place since Friday morning.
The weather service says any current rain will become widespread this morning then quickly change to freezing rain and persist for a couple of hours. It is expected to change to ice pellets before much ice builds up. A few centimetres of ice pellets is expected.
The precipitation will likely taper off to some freezing drizzle Saturday evening. However, as the low approaches Saturday night, freezing rain is expected to move back in, and may persist well into Sunday before changing over to rain.
Ice build up of 10 to possibly 20 mm is likely by late Sunday.
Ice accumulations of this magnitude combined with gusty northeast winds to 60 km/h may result in considerable power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines.
Dangerous winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads Saturday and Sunday.
